Description:

Cloth, most with jackets, various editions.

Paul White was an Australian missionary, evangelist, radio program host and author.  His books are based in Africa and depict African folklore and "missionary adventure". They tell of surgical operations in the wild using the most basic equipment and quite often striking against the village witchdoctors who relied on black magic to gain power. Although not quite pitting science against native superstition, they are an interesting glimpse into the protestant missionary mindset and the church's attempts to convert young adult readers as they told of souls saved in Africa.
